WTW: Apple Music Launch

What's Trending Image

Yesterday, the music streaming business became a little more crowded with the launch of Apple Music. Over the last couple of years, more and more music streaming services have come into existence, including the popular service Spotify as well as the highly publicized artist owned service, Tidal. Back in the day when purchasing songs online was king, Apple’s iTunes clearly sat atop the throne as the most popular marketplace to purchase and download songs.
